Book of 99 Review
WOW! Book of 99 is without a doubt the best online slot we've ever come across in terms of offering a mightily impressive return to player... As the name suggests this mythical-themed slot has a mindblowing RTP of 99%, which is absolutely unheard of in the world of iGaming. Props to Relax Gaming for being innovators, creating something slots fans have been pining after for some time.
This unique 5 reel, 10 payline slot offers players the chance to trigger 10 free spins with expanding symbols. These spins can be trigger by way of landing 3 wild symbols anywhere on the reels or by collecting 99 wild symbols and filling up a meter during base gameplay.
This slot takes inspiration from ancient Greece. The game's reels are set upon grand stone pillars with a map of Ancient Greece and Makedon (now known as Macedonia) is carved into the left-hand side. Upon the reels are symbols featuring characters from mythological tales, these include Lamia, a child-eating monster, a one-eyed Cylops, a mysterious female heroine and a dashing Greek hero. Low paying symbols are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A and 10. Book of 99's special wild symbol is the Book of 99 itself.
Unlike most Relax Gaming slots, Book of 99 is actually incredibly straight-forward in terms of general gameplay! The only major mechanic of note is the wild collection meter that can be found to the left of the reels.
In terms of navigating Book of 99, everything is found along an action bar at the bottom of the game reels. From left-to-right there's a hamburger menu (which gives players access to game settings and the paytable), mute button, a stake selection tool, turbo spin, the spin button and an autoplay button (that allows players to set an infinite number of automated spins).
Of course, this first-of-its-kind slot has an incredibly inviting RTP of 99%, meaning for ever £100 you spin, you can expect to see £99 returned! Considering that the industry average RTP for most slots sits around 96%, how can we possibly turn out noses up at this medium volatility slot! The maximum win players can enjoy whilst playing Book of 99 is 5,000x their stake, which for a game with an RTP of 99% isn't at all bad
There's certainly no shortage of 'Book of' slots, that being said Relax Gaming's latest offering to this already saturated market is a welcome one! It might well be a bit of gimmick game, but you know what... We enjoyed it! The gameplay is simple and they've not done anything particularly special... But when you factor in the 99% RTP this game quickly becomes a must play.
